Panko Bourbon Chicken

Made this again last night and it wasn’t as good as the first time it was made. Sometimes a dish doesn’t turn out the same the second time around and I always wonder why? On thinking about what was different several thoughts come to mind?

I didn’t use a measure spoon and just guessed on the amounts or sprinkled from the spice jar. Won’t do that again! The dish may have had too much brown sugar or too much soy the second time around. Again, because I was playing like I was super chef instead of following the recipe it just didn’t have the light delightful flavor I so enjoyed the first time.

If you desire a more rich sauce and if that is what you’re wanting to achieve then go ahead and go with 1/3 cup of brown sugar and a little more soy. The chicken and sauce was still good, but was a bit overwhelming for me. It also competed with the oriental rice and gave conflicting tastes. Next time I would measure.. measure away and oh… also go with white or brown rice to not lose the flavor of the sauce against the rice.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.
